Brad Jones: Insists he will be ready when called upon

Australia international Jones will be hoping to make his second appearance of the season when Liverpool travel to Bournemouth for their fourth round FA Cup tie on Saturday.

The 31-year-old has found first-team opportunities limited and knows he needs to take his chance when he gets it.

"I've realised that you've got to prepare all the time like you're going to start, so that if that surprise is sprung on you, you're as ready as you can be," Jones told the club's official website.

"There are obviously boys whose chances have been limited. If the gaffer gives you a chance, you've got to try and take it.

"Being a goalkeeper, it's different if you're not playing. It's rare that you come on as a substitute, so in that sense it's rare. But I think in general it's very similar for a lot of players.

"Nothing gets guaranteed, it's purely down to the manager's ideas of the game and what he wants to do and circumstances. I'll just continue on.

"I've said it before - I didn't expect to play so many games last season and this season, you never know what's going to happen."

t all started going downhill when they started putting a photo of the writer along side their story. Journalists started to think that 'they' are the story, rather than what they write. Smug, self obsessed & up their own arse's. That sums up the majority of newspaper sports reporters.

he reason so much sh*t is written about football is because there are so many people who want to read sh*t about football. Now shut up, take my money, and tell me Ronaldo is going to sign for Van Haal and that Mick McCarthy is signing Peter Crouch on loan.
